Around the Archdiocese: Oct. 21
There’s never shortage of inspiring or exciting events taking place at Catholic schools, parishes and other institutions throughout the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. With that in mind we’re initiating “Around the Archdiocese,” an intermittently published online feature highlighting some of the best submitted news items sent to The Catholic Telegraph.
Fire Safety at St. Dominic
Students at St. Dominic School learned about fire safety recently during a presentation called Firefighter Phil. Following the program, students in preschool through third grade were able to meet some of Delhi Township’s police officers and get an up close look at a police cruiser and motorcycle. Pictured in the main image above are students Adam Schloemer, Austin Tettenhorst and Eddie Jones with Corporal Frank Gentile.
Rosaries for the Combonies
Fourth grade students at St. Gabriel Consolidated School in Glendale reached beyond their community by participating in a service project this month.
The 50 students each made two rosary prayer booklets and two rosaries. The student will each keep one of their created items, and the others will be donated to St. Gabriel’s School in Bethlehem, Uganda.
All the rosaries were blessed by Deacon Tim Helmick and the students were also taught how to properly pray the rosary.
St. Gabriel School in Uganda is a Comboni Mission.
